DEVIL BOATS: The PT War Against Japan. Deadly, fast little boats armed with a 40mm anti-aircraft gun, two 20mm guns, four torpedo tubes & variously mounted .50 & .30 caliber machineguns. Reads like action packed fiction, but it's all factual. Ride on a U.S. PT Boat as it attacks much larger Japanese warships, blows up a supply barge, inserts a sabotage team behind enemy lines, makes daring riverine raids, shoots down enemy aircraft, and rescues downed US pilots. The U.S. Navy's PT boats dealt death and destruction in impact greatly in excess of their diminutive size. With their four torpedo tubes, the PTs became the scourge of Japanese coastal shipping in the Pacific. Maps, 50 b&w photographs, 256 pages. RARE: Original hardcover editions!
